Fluxbox Switch Window Replacement App?


I've been using Fluxbox for over a year now, and there has always been one little thing that has bothered me, its method to switch windows.

Now I know I've seen window switching apps in screenshots running on flux, but I could NEVER find any. Is there any separate application or something that I can download to do this? I can't find any anywhere!

Thanks.

Doesn't have to be, but yes, that is what it is on Windows, KDE, and Gnome.

AFAIK it's simply a key combo, and was Alt+Tab last time I tried (which was a while back I'll admit). Try something like FluxConf to set the keybindings. It's a window manager thing so I dunno if a seperate app can interact with the WM to provide such a feature.

I know how to change it, you edit the keys file...

That's not what I'm talking about. I mean there are separate apps that manage the switching of windows, such as when you Alt+Tab in KDE, it pops up that window to switch windows with. I've seen screenshots of people using similar things in Flux, and I would like to know where I can get something like that.

Well last time I remember you just hold down the combo like in Windows or KDE. And I'm fairly certain it's something built into the WM, not a seperate app. Can you give a link to a pic of it in action with Fluxbox?
What does the WorkspaceMenu contain?
